Bridget Loves Bernie

By Wikipedia

Bridget Loves Bernie was an American television comedy program. It starred Meredith Baxter and David Birney. It ran for one season, from 1972 to 1973 on CBS. It was seen as a fairly controversial show since it featured the marriage of a Catholic woman and a Jewish man.

The two stars ended up getting married after the show ended.

The premise of "Bridget Loves Bernie" is that 'Bridget' (and her family) is catholic and 'Bernie' (and his family) is Jewish. As one might expect, many humorous storylines, in this half-hour situation comedy, revolved around the interactions of the two families and their differences in faith. All the players hit their marks, as I recall, and this was a genuinely funny and very popular show, but was cancelled after one season due to the controversy created by the depicted 'inter-faith' marriage. It's amazing what was considered controversial back then! As an aside Meredith Baxter and David Birney (who played the title characters) actually went on to marry in real-life (though they ultimately divorced). In fact Meredith Baxter hypenated her last name 'Baxter-Birney' for many years after (Just look up old credits for the show "Family").
